PEORIA (25 News Now) - Overall, expect a mainly quiet but cold 10 Day Forecast. However, the one timeframe to watch will be tomorrow and tomorrow night as a system moves through. This will bring a winter mix to Central Illinois that may allow for some minor snow accumulations and ice accretions.
This Evening and Tonight:
We’ll see mainly clear skies for most of this evening, but expect increasing clouds after midnight and into tomorrow morning. Lows will fall back into the mid 20s.
Any areas of slush could refreeze overnight, so be mindful of a few slick spots and some black ice.
We’ll see a big range in temperatures tomorrow, ranging from the mid to upper 40s near Route 136 to the upper 20s near I-80. Areas along I-74, including Peoria and Bloomington-Normal, will in the upper 30s and low 40s.
Light snow will fall mostly near I-80 tomorrow morning, then a more widespread wintry mix will be likely tomorrow evening into tomorrow night. This will include a mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain. These precipitation types will range in that order from north to south.
Snow accumulations are expected to remain minimal with most areas seeing 0-1″. If you’re closer to I-80, upward of 1-2″ may be possible.
Freezing rain may allow for some minimal ice accretions, mainly south of Route 17. A glaze of ice up to 0.1″ may be possible. This could cause some slick road conditions tomorrow evening and tomorrow night.
Sunday will be cloudy and colder with highs in the mid 20s.
Dry but cold weather is on the way next week with highs mostly in the 20s and overnight lows in the single digits. Highs may rebound back into the 30s by the end of the week.
